ProtoStar-1 and Badr-6 will be launched on 28th june.

There has been a little change in planning :

AMC-21 will be launched together with SuperBird-7 on 6th august. These two satellites will arrive in Guyane at the beginning of july.

I have no news about Insat-4G and HB9.

Dear friends,
I noted that you wrote that LARES will be launched in June 2009. Why? What is your source? Official announcements from ASI and ESA are for December 2008. Thank you.

I think even June 2009 is highly ambitious. This is a new launcher, of which not a single component is yet fully qualified. Moreover, the launch pad is far from being operational. And December is just 8 months from now!

It's like Airbus' and Boeing's development projects - you quote an ambitious target date and only once it has become too obvious to everyone that you're not going to meet your schedule, you give another target date...

Question...V181 used Ariane 5 537 ES
V182 used 539 ECA.
What happened to Ariane 5  #538?
Thank you.

If 538 is GS it can be used for TerreStar1 mission.

Ariane 5 ECA with onboard number L538 was used for the flight V179 on November 14, 2007.

Ariane 5 ECA with onboard number L535 was used for the flight V175 on March 11, 2007.

See Jonathan McDowell's launchlog for details.

If 538 is GS it can be used for TerreStar1 mission.

Just to clarify: There is only one GS left - it's L532 - and it will launch Helios IIB in 2009. The current plan is to launch TerreStar on a ECA single launch.

Does this mean, there may not be any LEO mission again with Ariane5? Helios-2A/2B size satellites are far too big and heavy for VEGA. Does Arianespace plans to launch them with Soyuz or French Government & manufacturers will reduce the size of these type of satellites?

Why? Ariane 5 ECA and ES can also perform LEO missions, if such a large launcher is needed.

Little correction about Badr-6 and ProtoStar-1 launch.

Launch date is given as 27 June 2008 on Arabsat homepage.

I think, the piggy back payload on Pleiades was meant to be the LISA-Pathfinder, but i have found no sources mentioning a piggy back launch. LISA-Pathfinder is apparrently baselined for a Vega launch:
